S21R5: Mills Metropark Race Chat
« on: March 20, 2018, 11:17:27 PM »
Mar 27: Mills Metropark (2 x 20 laps) + [ SEANUS PIT MOD ]

Weather will be warm to hot, 25 degrees and 30 degrees and clear.

Instead of penalty ballast, I'll give Jeremy and Russ 30% restrictor for the round (because of the BoP ballast in race 2). Should amount to less than a 10 second penalty over the whole race.

I'm between Mael and Killa in the season standings, and these are our practice lap times so far... it's going to be interesting, although I expect Mael to pick up the pace.

3.    killagorilla    01:15.090
4.    XGN Wally    01:15.446
5.    Mael    01:16.175

Yeah, looks like that :-)
I didn't know Croft, but I've raced Mills quite a few times before and apart from tweaking the setup a bit (again, it's a weird car to me, but nonetheless fun to drive) I think I learned a bit better how to drive it.
See how we go...probably very difficult to overtake there...and I'm not so sure the sharp left-hand turn after the long straight is a good spot...

I think you'll be passing people there when they overshoot their braking point and run wide.


I think what's a bit counter-intuitive about this car setup is that I have increased the front rollbar quite a bit to get a sharper turn-in (which is actually what the setup tip in game says for front rollbar).

Don't thinks so  :(  Absolutely destroying the right rear tire on this track.

I have my daughter college awards night on Tuesday, she finished in the top 0.7% of the state  8) ;D and I will miss this round :(, I think it will be my first missed Tuesday since racing at XGN
slight chance could make it for race 2, but I doubt it

I am not 100% certain I can make it tonight. I will update shortly, I hurt my back yesterday and today I can't sit on a chair for too long.
Going to see the doctor for some pain relief.

That's no good, you don't realise how much a sore back slows you down until it happens

Thanks Phil.8. I have notice all the time because I get backlock all the time.

I'm gonna sound like a nitpicker BUT If you're going to quote someone especially someone as remarkable as Stephen please do the whole quote.
